A lower eyelid pinch technique, which is also referred to as a pinch blepharoplasty, is a procedure that removes skin from underneath the eyelids. The natural aging process and other factors can cause bags and excessive skin to develop underneath the eyes. The lower eyelid technique is very effective for correcting those problems.
The doctors at Facial Aesthetic Concepts can use the Pinch Technique to remove excess skin from under the eyes to give you a more youthful, rested look.

A traditional blepharoplasty requires that excess fat and muscle be removed along with the skin. However, the lower eyelid pinch technique only requires removing the excess skin. The doctor is only required to make a small incision.
Minimal Side Effects
Complications are one of the many concerns that people have about getting surgery. However, the chances of suffering serious side effects from the lower eyelid pinch technique are quite low. Some of the most commonly reported side effects people experience are bruising and swelling. Those side effects typically go away within three to four days. Patients will be able to return to work once the swelling and bruising goes away. Additionally, people can typically return to strenuous exercise within two weeks.
Faster Healing Time
The less invasive a procedure is, the quicker a person will be able to heal. In order to ensure you heal as quickly as possible, you will have to follow all of the instructions your doctor’s recommend. It is also recommended that you avoid smoking after your procedure.
One of the reasons people are able to heal faster after they get this procedure is because it is a bloodless one. Bleeding not only increases the recovery time, but it can also cause pain and bruising.
Can Be Completed within a Short Amount of Time
This procedure can be completed within an hour or less. It is performed under local anesthesia. People can leave the office when the doctor finishes performing their procedure.
Everyone has a different tolerance for pain. However, most people do not find the lower eyelid pinch technique to be painful. The use of local anesthesia helps minimize pain. If you do experience pain after this procedure, then prescription medication can be prescribed.
Can Be Combined Along With Other Procedures
Because this procedure is minimally-invasive, many people get the lower eyelid pinch technique along with other procedures. A mid face lift and cheek lift are examples of procedures that can be performed along with the lower eyelid pinch technique.
